I am well and wonderful, thanks to Jenniferâ€™s amazing workshop! I am a busy single Mom of three with a demanding full time job. And I teach at least eight yoga classes per week! Although I live a pretty holistic lifestyle, I suffered from insomnia and stress.
Every night I would have to go to bed by nine pm because I was so exhausted, only to wake up at one or two am! Then I would lie awake for a couple of hours reading until I fell asleep again â€” only to have to wake up at 6am! I could be productive until about five in the afternoon, but then I would run the rest of the day on autopilot. I felt mentally sluggish and drained.
I came to Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra retreat with Jennifer at Kripalu for continuing education and also to learn more about Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra. The experience went far beyond my expectations and was truly transformational. Jennifer Reis is one of the most phenomenal teachers I have ever met.
She emanates radiance and is joyful in her teaching. Every moment of the weekend was engaging and informative. The wealth of knowledge she gave to us and the handouts to take home in a folder was such a bonus! I am able to easily continue practicing Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra and Five Element Yoga at home.
Since I returned home from the retreat my life has completely changed! I sleep through the night EVERY NIGHT and have pleasant and vivid dreams. Prior to the weekend I felt very bloated and was at least ten pounds overweight. The bloating went away almost instantly and Iâ€™ve since lost the weight.
Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra and Five Element Yoga practice has jumpstarted my metabolism, relieved me of stress and has given me so much more energy. I have never felt so light and unburdened before! My body feels more flexible and stress free, and I move joyfully through each day with grace and ease. My life is still just as busy, active and stressful â€” but I respond differently. My mind is clear and my composure is calm.
I cannot thank Jennifer enough for her life changing Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra retreat! This is the ultimate in truly healing restorative yoga. I canâ€™t wait to take her teacher training this spring!
